Urge Your Legislators to Override Governor’s Healthcare Veto
Yesterday Governor Rell vetoed HB 6582, An Act Establishing the Healthcare Partnership, which would enable teachers and others to voluntarily join the state employees’ health insurance pool. Legislators have the opportunity to override the Governor’s veto – they will be meeting for an override session on July 20.
This bill is very important to Connecticut because it takes a monumental step forward in reducing the skyrocketing costs of municipal health insurance – one of the most serious fiscal challenges facing towns and cities. The legislature’s bipartisan Office of Fiscal Analysis has confirmed that HB 6582 will save taxpayers money.
